Attorney Mark Buckley, CFP

Rhode Island's Only Consumer Bankruptcy Lawyer and Debt-Settlement Attorney Who is a Certified Financial Planner Professional

Firm Overview

My name is Mark Buckley and I am a Rhode Island/ Massachusetts bankruptcy lawyer and debt-settlement attorney. My practice is devoted to helping honest people struggling with too much debt.
I am the only bankruptcy lawyer who is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER. I am also in a select group of Rhode Island bankruptcy attorneys who have filed bankruptcy protection for more than 3,000 clients. To date, every client of mine has received a successful bankruptcy discharge.
I have enjoyed being a Rhode Island bankruptcy lawyer since 1991 and my clients come from each of Rhode Island's 39 cities and towns and nearby Massachusetts. Every day, I offer Chapter 7 and debt-settlement information through in-home and free telephone debt consults.
I am a member of the Rhode Island Bar Association and Massachusetts Bar Association. I'm a former contributing author to the Bankruptcy Law Network and a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. I also served on the attorney Advisory Committee to the Rhode Island Bankruptcy Court.
If you are being hounded by bill collectors for credit card debts, medical bills, or have other debt problems, I can help. With an understanding of Rhode Island and Massachusetts bankruptcy law and a call from you, I can explain how to erase debt, protect your property and get a financial fresh start. Together, we can explore debt settlement options, credit counseling, and protections available under the new bankruptcy laws. You can then decide the best course of action to take.
For more bankruptcy information, or particular questions on how to file bankruptcy in Rhode Island or Massachusetts, feel free to contact me directly. I respect your privacy and your call will be confidential.
With over 6,000 licensed attorneys in Rhode Island, I never wanted to be a generalist; taking any case that walks in the door. Instead, I've devoted my practice to bankruptcy and debt-relief. Focusing on clients who are struggling with uncontrollable debt, I offer in-home appointments throughout the state. My clients love in-home appointments because meetings: are with a bankruptcy lawyer (not with a paralegal as in most bankruptcy offices), are more relaxed, less stressful, and more productive because most of the documents that I'll need to review will be close at hand. Bottom line, In-home appointments are confidential and put me in a great position to help you.
We're here to help not just with providing financial stability through bankruptcy but also to help you restore your credit. Attorney Mark Buckley knows that your bankruptcy is only part of your concern: You also want to get back to a normal life. This includes rebuilding your credit score as fast as possible.
For years, we have been meeting with clients who are terrified about the future: How will you survive in a world that will judge you based on your credit score? You need credit to rent an apartment, or buy a car. In fact, more and more, employers are running credit checks on potential employees.
We've listened to your concerns and then we found answers. In our research, we've discovered a few things:
1) If you take immediate steps to start rebuilding your credit score after a bankruptcy, you can transform your credit score 12 to 24 months after your bankruptcy has been discharged.
2) You must take these steps. Too many people decide to wipe their hands clean of credit. As time passes, instead of having poor credit, they end up with no credit. Unfortunately, no credit is just as bad as poor credit.
Because our clients are so concerned about their credit, we searched high and low for the best credit education program out there. After testing the program, we learned that people who have been through the 7 Steps to a 720 Credit Score program transform their credit scores, usually within 24 months of declaring bankruptcy.
With these kinds of results, we decided to make this program available to every single one of our bankruptcy clients for free.
